Jay Leno takes a closer look at the Toyota FT-1 concept [video]

Toyota FT-1 concept was one of the biggest surprises at the North American International Auto Show in January and since then there have been many speculations, that is previews a new Supra.

The FT-1 concept was built by Toyota’s California-based Calty design studio, as part if its 40th anniversary this year.

Combining design elements from Toyota’s rich sports car history, like the 2000GT of the mid-1960s with its wraparound windscreen and side glass arrangement, along with curvilinear body, sharply defined contrasts, large air intakes, exhaust ports and retractable rear wing, the FT-1 is the car many enthusiasts would love to see in production.

Recently this hot front engine/rear-wheel drive concept rolled into Jay Leno’s Garage, where the former host of The Tonight Show talked to chief designer Alex Shen from Toyota’s CALTY Design Research. Hit play to see what Alex has to say about a possible production model.
